Manual Medicine and Spinal Manipulation: Improve Health and Reduce Pain


You will receive a thorough diagnosis and treatment of reversible functional problems of the musculoskeletal system (muscles and joints) with particular attention to the spine. Techniques and hands-on therapies include: osteopathy, chiropractic therapy, physical therapy, trigger point massage, and mind-body approaches, such as breathwork techniques.

Manual Medicine is sometimes called Manipulative Medicine/Therapy, because it includes mobilization and manipulation techniques.

How manual medicine can help you:

Manual Medicine treats pain in the musculoskeletal system. It can help you with:

  • Acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain (particularly around the spine),
  • Headache,
  • Neck pain,
  • Back pain,
  • Sciatica, and
  • Shoulder pain.
What the research is showing:

There have been at least 40 clinical trials and as many systematic reviews of the effects of spinal manipulation in low back pain. Several high-quality studies showed strong benefits from spinal manipulation for patients with acute or sub-acute low back pain.

The Agency of Health Care Policy and Research, the American College of Physicians, and the American Pain Society support manual medicine and its inclusion into the widely published treatment guidelines. For neck pain, research shows that spinal manipulation and mobilization are recommended in combination with exercises.
